It’s been a while

So, its been a little while since I posted last. Andros’s birthday party was cancelled unforuantly due to the monstrous storm last weekend, and while we initially thought we’d still have a party we’ve decided not to in the end because it’d just be kind of silly – easter’s next weekend so we’ll see most of Kevin’s family then, and most of mine we see fairly frequently anyhow. We had a fun day anyhow – lots of snow, playing with toys and coconut cake with cream cheese icing. Its pretty crazy to think that he’s really one year old already. Over the past week (starting like 1 or 2 days before his birthday), he’s been really learning to walk, and he’s gotten pretty good at it now. Walking across teh room from one thing to another is ‘old hat’ now!

Andros has been sick for the past few days, which has’t been fun, though he is finally getting better. He had a fever and a really runny nose and horrible cough for a couple days last week, but its mostly cleared up now.

My lifeguarding class is going well, starting week three now. On wednesday we start backboarding which is the really big important part of the class as far as I can tell. From the sounds of it we might actually get done a week or so early, which would be awesome… but we’ll see.

Swimming at the Y

So strange, last night after tae kwon do, I was freezing cold. Seriously, the room couldn’t have been more than 55 or 60 degrees, and it was just a slow class, so I was *COLD* by the time it was over. It didnt’ help that it was like 5 degrees outside and in the car… by the time I got home, I was SOOO cold, I layed under two blankets on the couch shivered for like an hour… and then I puked 😦 Had a little fever, just felt horrible… but by 2am I was fine. So weird.

In other news, I think I’m going to apply to Baker College, for their Computer Programming associates degree, so I’ve got one option good and open. Then we’ll see what Oregon State says (should hear from them by the 1st of February), and go from their. I’m still pretty torn…

We went to the Tuscarawas County YMCA today, and got info on how to get a discounted membership. Its a very nice Y – two pools, one standard for doing laps in and then a smaller one thats super warm where they do classes thats nice and shallow. I did 20 laps (down and back), while Kevin & Andros played in the small pool – they had a lot of fun, and Kevin did like 6 laps in the pool. Then we went and worked out in their weight/fitness room which is also super nice. I walked around the track carrying Andros (walked a mile;) and then he fell asleep. Kevin ran a couple miles and did some other random stuff… not really sure what all he did. Overall it was a very nice day. I hope we get a membership one way or another, and end up going at least once or twice a week. It took me a couple laps to get back into the rhythm of swimming, but it was super nice. Almost forgot how much I love to swim!!
